CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 300 Years of Wolff's "German Logic", 21-22 Nov 2013, Leuven, BELGIUM

Organizers: Arnaud Pelletier, Karin de Boer, Eric Schliesser, Benot Timmermans

 Venue: Institute of Philosophy, Kardinaal Mercierplein 2, 3000 Leuven

 Wolff?s so called ?German Logic?, published for the first time in Halle in
 1713, was one of the most popular but also one of the most controversial
 books in eighteenth century German philosophy: the book was edited forteen
 times during Wolff?s career; it was the subject of dozens of publications
 against or in defence of it; and it is the origin of the polemical
 expression of a ?Leibniz-Wolffian philosophy?. In spite of all this, Wolff?s
 first treatise on logic is hardly known nowadays. The conference ? which
 will mark the 300th anniversary of the publication ? aims to bring together
 international researchers in order to assess the historical and
 philosophical significance of Wolff?s German Logic. The center of discussion
 will be the main philosophical issue that triggered off the controversies in
 the course of the eighteenth century, namely: What is the role of logic in
 philosophy? What is a concept? What does is mean to analyze a concept? Such
 questions will be addressed in view of the sources, meaning, and reception
 of Wolff?s German Logic.
